Two of the greatest Franklin's (IMO), and certainly two of the longest 17 & 18 minutes, occured on consecutive nights (actually consecutive sets. Dancin > Franklin's from Set 2 10-27-79 and set 1 Half Step > Franlin's 10-28-79.

Good call. You beat me "2" it. Love both versions. I always thought that Jerry had so much fun playing it the first night, he wanted to do it again. Cetainly sounds like it anyway. Plus the He's Gone>Other One from the first night it a masterpiece.

You're right, but it's not just Jerry, Phil is in on the act in a big way as well. In fact on 10-27 he comes in near the end, when it sounds like Jerry is trying to wrap it up, and takes the intiative to drive the rest of the band back into the jam for another 3 minutes or so. The next night he also is, in many ways, the driving force behind the jam as well. Listen to them and you'll see what I mean.
